I went to the movies today. I cannot believe that a movie such as Cowboys and Aliens was ever made. I am literally flabbergasted. Now for those that liked it, I apologize. Please enjoy and I respect your movie tastes. When I was watching this, I couldn't get it right in my mind whether to enjoy as a SCI-FI movie or a WESTERN
PICK ONE AND THEN SHOW IT
I like SCI-FI movies. If done properly, I love them. The same goes for westerns too. But to combine the two just doesn't transfer well in my mind nor in my 15 year old granddaughter'S mind either. So I am wondering who the target audience really was?
BOTH ACTORS ACTED
I enjoyed seeing Daniel Craig who just recently played James Bond. He was the fittest I have ever seen a man to be. It appeared nothing on his body was wasted as as muscles go. Lean and mean. I also enjoyed seeing Harrison Ford too. Here is what I came away with.
BOTH ACTORS ARE ENJOYABLE
Harrison Ford would do well in a western movie. He has the gruffness, the maturity and his face is westernized. Daniel Craig can do SCI-FI and has done it and it comes across well. I am convinced he could even play a decent role in a western.
I KNOW WHY THE STARS DID IT
These guys have to be commanding 15-20 million a picture so I think they are above criticisms. However, I am stumped about what Hollywood is thinking. If they continue on like this, they are doomed. HBO will be able to put out better pictures and cheaper too.
THE BIG SCREEN LIVES BUT FOR HOW LONG?
I love the big screen, the audio and the movie theater experience of course without the crowds. But if they keep this up, I am staying home. Of course when a true winner comes up, I will be there but the question is will the theaters?
